Halloween Trio

Mark Anthony

When Mark Anthony was young and bold
And History wasn't very old,
He met Cleopatra the Nile Queen
The most wonderful woman he'd ever seen.

Politics tried to keep them apart
But their love was from deep in the heart.
He's just the announcer and She a Cat Judge
From their duties they won't budge.

So welcome one and Welcome all
To the Haunted Weekend in the Cat Show Hall.

Zorro

In the town of San Diego
Lives a bandit name of Zorro.
Now he's up in Sacremento
Calling cats for the big cat show.

Elena is his lady fair
Flamingo dancing with great flare,
Veil and crown up in her hair,
Clerking for the cat show.

Haunted weekend by Jazzy Cats.
Haunted Catalog and fancy that.
The announcer wears a big black hat.
We do it all to show our cats.

Himself

Sunday is the very best day
    Of the cat show is what I say.
'Cause soon as it's over
    Away I'll drive
It's thoughts of home
    That keep me alive.

So bring your cats
    When you hear the call.
From exhibit cage
    To judging hall.
The Haunted Weekend
    By Jazzy Cats
Will be over soon,
    I'm looking forward to that.
